Frequently voted one of the Best Places to live by local and national publications, Phoenix’s Arcadia neighborhood straddles Phoenix and Scottsdale; beginning on the southern foothills of Camelback Mountain and extending north to Thomas road.
Once home to hundreds of acres of citrus groves, Arcadia today is a jewel in east Phoenix, with many homes enjoying incredible views of Camelback Mountain, as well as large lots lined with lush fruit trees and giant palms.
Beyond its natural beauty, Arcadia’s location makes it highly desirable. Home to highly respected schools, and its own annual Fourth of July parade, Arcadia is a great place to raise children. Just minutes from Biltmore Fashion Park and Scottsdale Fashion Square, and only about a 15-minute drive to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport or downtown Phoenix – Arcadia is perfectly situated between some of the best shopping and dining Phoenix and Scottsdale have to offer.
Homes in Arcadia vary greatly in terms of architectural styles, from sprawling, 4- to 5-bedroom ranches to revivals and pueblo-style homes dating to the late 1920s and early ’30s. The large lots mean swimming pools and guest houses are plentiful, and even extravagances like tennis or basketball courts can be found.
